Summary

English Official Summary

The semifinal battle gets under way, pitting Ash against Tobias. The talented Trainer is preceded by his reputation—he’s been defeating his opponents using only his Darkrai. Tobias comes on strong and quick, defeating Ash’s Heracross, Torkoal, and Gible one after another! But when Ash brings out Sceptile, a spirited skirmish begins, and for the first time during the Sinnoh League, Darkrai is defeated! Tobias is unfazed by this turn of events. He next brings out Latios, another surprisingly powerful Pokémon. And with one move, Ash’s Sceptile is unable to battle. Ash follows up by bringing out Swellow, and a sky battle between Swellow and Latios ensues. Latios proves too powerful for Swellow, and Ash is left with one Pokémon, while Tobias still has five! When Ash turns to Pikachu as his final Pokémon, the action-filled bout gets even more intense, and eventually both Latios and Pikachu are rendered unable to battle at the same time. And since Pikachu is Ash’s last Pokémon, Tobias is declared the winner! This is the first time Ash has made it to the final four of an event of this magnitude, and he has gained the respect of Tobias—who then goes on to triumph in his final battle and is declared the winner of the Sinnoh League! We leave our heroes as Barry bids them all farewell. Both Ash and Dawn vow to continue pursuing their dreams, while in the face of their determination, Brock finds himself questioning his own plans…

Portuguese Official Summary

Enquanto a Batalha da semifinal está por vir colocando Ash contra Tobias, torna-se rapidamente evidente que Tobias não é um treinador que joga suave! Já precedido por sua reputação de derrotar seus oponentes usando apenas seu Darkrai, Tobias surge forte e poderoso, derrotando Heracross, Torkoal e Gible de Ash, um após o outro! Mas quando Ash traz Sceptile, uma poderosa dúvida começa, e pela 1ª vez durante a Liga Sinnoh, Darkrai é eliminado! Entretanto, não intimidado, Tobias traz seu Latios, mostrando seu poder e superioridade mais uma vez. E com um movimento, Sceptile está fora de combate. Surge Swellow e uma batalha no céu entre Swellow e Latios começa. Mas Latios prova muito poder para Swellow, e Ash fica apenas com um Pokémon, comparado aos 5 de Tobias! Ash traz Pikachu, e eles começam uma luta repleta de intensidade e ação, cujos resultados deixam os dois, Latios e Pikachu fora de combate. Porém, como o Pikachu de Ash é o último Pokémon, Tobias é declarado o vencedor. Mas, embora Ash seja derrotado, essa é a 1ª vez que ele fica entre os 4 finalistas em um evento dessa magnitude e ele ganhou o respeito de Tobias também. Nós deixamos nossos heróis enquanto Barry despede-se deles e tanto Ash como Dawn prometem ir atrás de seus sonhos, enquanto Brock se pergunta se ele de fato fará a mesma coisa...

Finnish Official Summary

Semifinaaliottelu käynnistyy ja Ash saa vastaansa Tobiasin. Pian käy ilmeiseksi, että Tobias ei ole kouluttaja, jonka voisi ohittaa olankohautuksella! Tobiasin maine kiirii jo hänen edellään, sillä hän on tähän asti onnistunut päihittämään vastustajansa käyttämällä ainoastaan Darkraita. Tobias aloittaakin vahvasti ja tyrmää Ashin Heracrossin, Torkoalin ja Giblen – yhden toisensa jälkeen! Mutta kun Ash kutsuu esiin Sceptilen, seuraa armoton kähinä, ja ensimmäistä kertaa koko Sinnoh-liigan aikana Darkrai tyrmääntyy! Tobias ei kuitenkaan hätkähdä, vaan kutsuu Latiosinsa jatkamaan ja osoittaa jälleen taitonsa ja voimansa: ei tarvita kuin yksi liike, niin Sceptile tyrmääntyy. Seuraavana peliin saapuu Swellow, ja alkaa Swellow’n ja Latiosin ilmataistelu. Latios osoittautuu kuitenkin liian voimakkaaksi Swellowille ja Ashille jää enää yksi Pokémon, kun Tobiasilla niitä on vielä viisi! Ashin viimeinen Pokémon on Pikachu ja alkaa armoton jännitysnäytelmä, jonka huipennukseksi sekä Latios ETTÄ Pikachu tyrmääntyvät. Mutta koska Pikachu oli Ashin viimeinen Pokémon, Tobias julistetaan voittajaksi. Silti, vaikka Ash kokeekin tappion, tämä on ensimmäinen kerta, kun hän on päässyt finaalinelikkoon näin suuren luokan kilpailussa, ja hän saakin myös Tobiasin arvostuksen. Tiukan turnauksen lopuksi Barry toivottaa sankareillemme hyvästit, ja Ash ja Dawn päättävät lujasti jatkaa unelmiensa tavoittelua, ja myös Brock miettii hiljaa itsekseen oman elämänsä suuntaa...

Russian Official Summary

В полуфинале Эш встречается с Тобиасом, и вскоре становится ясно, что такого тренера, как Тобиас, просто нельзя недооценивать. На этом турнире он одолел всех своих соперников, используя лишь одного Даркрайя. Этот бой также начинается неутешительно для Эша, ведь он одного за одним теряет Геракросса, Торкоала и Гибла. Однако Септай все же находит слабые места Даркрайя, и впервые на этом турнире он оказывается поверженным. Впрочем, Тобиаса это нисколько не смущает и он вызывает Латиоса, который демонстрирует всё ту же силу и идеальную выучку. Септайя он выводит из битвы всего одним ударом. Эш вызывает Суэллоу, и начинается настоящий воздушный бой. Но Латиос оказывается слишком сильным соперником, и Суэллоу не может продолжать. Итак, у Эша остается всего один покемон, а у Тобиаса – еще целых пять! Эш прибегает к помощи Пикачу. Начинается ожесточенная схватка, в результате которой и Пикачу, и Латиос не могут продолжить бой. Поскольку у Эша не остается покемонов, победителем становится Тобиас. Однако, Эш никогда прежде еще не входил в четверку сильнейших на столько крупном турнире. Кроме того, он заслужил уважение Тобиаса. Барри прощается с нашими героями, а Эш и Доун клянутся, что будут идти к своим мечтам. Брок же пока не уверен, чем займется в будущем.

Dutch Official Summary

Terwijl het halve finale Gevecht aan de gang is met Ash tegen Tobias, wordt het al snel duidelijk dat Tobias niet een Trainer is die onderschat moet worden. Hij heeft al een reputatie doordat hij al zijn tegenstanders heeft verslagen met alleen zijn Darkrai en Tobias begint sterk en krachtig door eerst Heracross en dan Torkoal en Gible van Ash te verslaan! Maar als Ash Secptile tevoorschijn haalt begint er een krachtige schermutseling en voor het eerst tijdens de Sinnoh League wordt Drakrai uitgeschakeld! Echter, Tobias roept onaangedaan zijn Latios op, en laat nogmaals zijn kracht en meesterschap zien. Met één zet wordt Sceptile uitgeschakeld. Dan komt Swellow en een luchtgevecht tussen Swellow en Latios barst los, maar Latios blijkt te sterk voor Swellow te zijn en Ash houdt nog maar een Pokémon over, tegenover de vijf van Tobias! Ash zet Pikachu in en zo begint een ronde vol intensiteit en actie, die resulteert in het uitschakelen van zowel Latios als Pikachu. Aangezien Pikachu de laatste Pokémon van Ash is, wordt Tobias de winnaar. Maar hoewel Ash is verslagen, is dit de eerste keer dat hij bij de laatste vier hoort van een evenement van dit formaat en hij heeft ook het respect van Tobias gewonnen. We verlaten onze helden wanneer Barry afscheid neemt en zowel Ash als Dawn beloven dat ze samen hun dromen waar zullen maken. Brock vraagt zich stilletjes af of hij wel hetzelfde doet...

Norwegian Official Summary

I det semifinalene setter igang, og Ash skal opp mot Tobias, blir det enda tydeligere at Tobias IKKE er en trener man skal undervurdere! Han har rykte på seg for å slå sine motstandere med å bare bruke Darkrai, og Tobias begynner sterkt og kraftfullt, og slår Ash sin Heracross, Torkoal og Gible, en etter en! Men når Ash tar ut Sceptile, begynner en mektig kamp, og for første gang i løpet av Sinnoh League blir Darkrai eliminert! Men uaffektert av dette tar Tobias ut sin Latios, og viser sin styrke og sitt vidd igjen. Og med ett trekk er Sceptile ute av stand til å kjempe. Ut kommer Swellow, og en luftkamp mellom Swellow og Latios er i gang. Men Latios er for mektig for Swellow, og Ash er nede i én Pokémon, mot Tobias' fem! Ash tar ut Pikachu, og begynner en kamp fylt med intensitet og spenning, som resulterer i at både Latios og Pikachu er ute av stand til å kjempe. Men siden Pikachu er Ash sin siste Pokémon, blir Tobias utropt til vinner. Men selv om Ash er slått ut, er det første gang han har vært blant de siste fire på et arrangement av denne størrelsen, og han har fått respekten til Tobias også. Vi forlater våre helter mens Barry sier farvel og både Ash og Dawn sverger på å fortsette mot drømmene sine, mens Brock stille lurer på om han skal gjøre det samme...

Swedish Official Summary

När striden i semifinalen tar sin början, där Ash ställs mot Tobias, blir det snart uppenbart att Tobias INTE är en tränare som ska underkattas! Ryktet om att Tobias besegrar sina motståndare genom att bara använda sin Darkrai föregick honom, och han går ut starkt och kraftfullt, och besegrar Ashs Heracross, Torkoal och Gible – en efter en! Men sedan tar Ash fram Sceptile och en mäktig batalj inleds , och för första gången i Sinnoh Ligan blir Darkrai utslagen! Men Tobias förblir oberörd, tar fram sin Latios och visar än en gång prov på styrka och skicklighet. Och efter ett enda move kan Sceptile inte strida längre. Därpå kommer Swellow fram och tar upp en luftstrid mot Latios. Men Latios visar sig vara alltför kraftfull för Swellow och Ash står med bara en Pokémon medan Tobias har fem! Ash tar fram Pikachu och inleder en intensiv och fartfylls strid som resulterar i att BÅDE Latios och Pikachu inte kan strida längre. Men eftersom Pikachu är Ashs sista Pokémon utropas Tobias till vinnare. Men även om Ash har besegrats är det här första gången han varit en av de sista fyra i en tävling av den här storleken, och i slutändan vann han även Tobias respekt. Vi lämnar våra hjältar när Barry tar farväl av dem och både Ash och Dawn lovar att fortsätta att försöka uppnå sina drömmars mål tillsammans, samtidigt som Brock ställer sig frågan om han själv verkligen gör samma sak.

Danish Official Summary

Da semifinalekampen, hvor Ash er oppe mod Tobias, går i gang, bliver det hurtigt tydeligt, at Tobias er en træner, man ikke skal undervurdere! Rygtet om hvordan han overvinder sine modstandere kun ved hjælp af sin Darkrai er løbet i forvejen, og Tobias virker stærk og kraftfuld idet han overvinder Ash’ Heracross, Torkoal og Gible – en efter en! Men da Ash henter Sceptile frem, kommer det til voldsomme kampe, og for første gang i Sinnoh Ligaen bliver Darkrai overvundet. Tobias henter dog bare uanfægtet sin Latios frem og viser endnu engang hvor dygtig og kraftfuld han er. Med et enkelt træk bliver Sceptile gjort ukampdygtig. Ud kommer Swellow, og et slag udkæmper sig oppe i luften mellem Swellow og Latios. Men Latios viser sig at være for stærk for Swellow, og nu står Ash tilbage med én Pokémon mod Tobias’ fem! Ash kalder Pikachu frem, og nu begynder en begivenhedsrig og intens kamp, som ender med, at både Latios og Pikachu er ude af stand til at kæmpe videre. Men eftersom Pikachu var Ash’ sidste Pokémon, erklæres Tobias for vinder. Men selvom Ash har tabt, så er det første gang han har været blandt de 4 sidste i en turnering i denne størrelse, og han har også opnået Tobias’ respekt. Vi forlader vores helte da Barry tager afsked med dem alle, og Dawn og Ash erklærer, at de fortsat vil forfølge deres drømme sammen, mens Brock i sit stille sind overvejer, om det egentlig også gælder ham selv...

Script Error

The English narrator has an extra line compared to the Japanese original narrator when talking about the battlefield.

English Narrator: Now, let's see our battlefield for today.
A-ha! It's grass!
Japanese Narrator: Oh, the stage will be the grass field this time!
(ナレーター): おっと 今回の舞台は草のフィールドだ!

After replacing the title card music for most of the Sinnoh League Victors season, this episode kept the original Japanese title card music.

Script Error

The English dub completely removes what goods Musashi was advertising in the Japanese original.

Jessie: You can't enjoy the show running on an empty stomach, so fill 'er up.
Musashi: Rice crackers and caramel! Or would you like some juice and potato chips? (コジロウ): おせんに キャラメルジュースにポテチはいかがですか!

Script Error

The Japanese Announcer states that was a super effective (効果抜群) hit.

Japanese Announcer: Heracros's Megahorn is super effective!
(アナウンサー): ヘラクロスのメガホーン! これは 効果抜群だ!
04:04

Script Error

The Japanese original says nothing about toys specifically like the English Dub says. It only mentions if Team Rocket had any Darkrai related goods.

Character English Translation Japanese
Guy Hey, got any Darkrai merchandise? Hey, do you have Darkrai goods? ねぇ ダークライのグッズある?
Girl Yeah, any toys? I want Darkrai too! 私もダークライほしい!
Jessie Any? Every toy! Yes, yes, we do! はいはい ありますよ。

Script Error

Meowth explains Team Rocket shouldn't have pants...

Meowth: Since I got a grip on that we're all joined at the hip. That Twerp's beaten the pants off of us many times, but he's getting the pants beaten off of him, so the trickle-down theory proves we don't deserve to have pants in the first place!
Nyarth: Yesterday's enemy is today's friend. If the opponent who constantly keeps tormenting us loses so easily, our existential value will drop significantly!
(ニャース): 昨日の敵は今日の友って言うニャ。ニャーたちが さんざん苦しめられてきた相手があっさり負けるようではニャーたちの存在価値が著しく下がってしまうのニャ。

For me, it just feels so wrong a legendary Pokémon is in the tournement. I've got the feeling Satoshi is gonna get pwned, badly.

Well we know there was at least 2 Legendary Pokemon in the tournament, the Heatran and Takuto's Darkrai. Who know! Maybe Golgo's prediction will come true and Arceus will show up to save the day for Satoshi. It is a Pokemon tournament, so if a trainer can capture and train a legendary Pokemon, I think that its fair in that aspect.

Reshiram is more likely to appear ha. Actually, it'll probably appear before Ash in Isshu like Ho-Oh did when he first started in Kanto.

This episode was one of the best we've had so far. Very intense battle indeed, especially the moment of Jukain bringing Darkrai down. Latios was a huge surprise as well.

Also, it's nice to see that Satoshi actually progresses. He's clearly the second best trainer in this league, and that's awesome!

Ash would definitely beat Takuto if he/she use a normal pokémon

I think Ash did his best because nobody defeated Darkrai except him and he also defeated another legendary.This shows us he is a great trainer and better than everybody in this league.

I also think using legendary is not fair.

Overall I was very happy for the outcome of this episode. Obviously I would have liked to see Satoshi win but that's not going to happen any time soon. What made this episode sweet was the fact that Jukain was able to defeat Darkrai for the first time in Sinnoh. None of the gym leaders or Sinnoh opponents that Takuto faced was able to defeat it. Also, Pikachu being able to face Latios like that was also epic. Satoshi just needs to catch that Ho-oh he keeps seeing so he'd have his own legendary Pokemon.

Yet in BW we're going to see Pikachu lose to normal Pokemon again.

Its like how Pikachu defeated Regice at the end of Battle Frontier, and went to losing to normal weak Pokemon again at the start of DP.

A few edits in the English dub, once again mainly with Team Rocket.
